Our initial visit to Martin Creek State Park was to only last one week, but our stay lasted a second week. We cannot go 2 weeks without dumping our "stuff". We broke camp down, brought in the slide, hitched the trailer to the truck and headed to the dump station. This is quite a hassle for a 15 minute job. We were so grateful to the park ranger who saw us backing in the trailer and asked us if we wanted to borrow the portable "dump" tank. WHAT...there is such a thing!! We are learning new stuff everyday.
This was an interesting experience. Since the kids refused to use the bathroom at the park and only use the trailer, we insisted that they get to participate with the dirty dead of emptying the trailer. You can tell from their faces that they were not too thrilled, but hey you do the poo...you get to play with the goo!!!!
|Drake could not believe that we made him do this.|
|Someone was excited to help...she got to wear the "gloves"|
|I think Cory was excited too.|
|Yes, it takes more than one person..thank goodness for teenagers!|
|Drake was asking why he needed to wear gloves, then the hose broke apart and he learned the "WHY" for himself.|
|It's a tough job but somebody has to do it!|
|Dump station sign|
|Porta Potty hooked to the truck...nobody wanted to walk through camp pulling it...lol|
|The final deposit!|
|Attaching the hose to the black water...BEWARE!!|
